What is K?
Similar to last episode’s WAR discussion, K is a single statistic developed by Manny. Rather than comparing players to replacement level, it compares them to the average player. You can read up on it in full here, or listen to the episode for the quick and dirty.
Corsica.Hockey is the best hockey statistics website out there, and running it is a thankless job, that Manny has done tirelessly. We chat briefly about updates and the future of the site.
